I discovered M. Alt's books earlier this year and really enjoyed reading them. I quickly went through the series, and looked forward to this latest installment. Unfortunately, this book does not live up to the others. The witchiness is barely there. The solution to the mystery is obvious early on; perhaps the real mystery is why Maggie can't see what's going on as early as the reader can. Maggie's boss Lis, Enchantments, and the people who are usually found there are barely mentioned. Even Minnie the cat is absent for most of the book. Instead of being interested in the mystery, I was obsessing about how Maggie could be walking around in the same clothes for a few days. I really enjoyed the first five books in this series, and I hope we can get back to business as usual in the next installment. This book was not terrible, it just wasn't up to par with the others.

I generally enjoy this series very much, but was extremely disappointed in this newest offering. The story D-R-A-G-G-E-D, and when something did happen it was generally random and unnecessary. Case in point-I sincerely hope the next book deals with the Melanie situation, as it was merely a confusing/pathetic sidenote in this one. And while I enjoy reading mysteries very much, because I am a horrible sleuth and am therefore always surprised (lol), I actually figured most of this one out fairly early. I will definitely read the next book, but I will not pay for it in hardcover form again. Oh, and just a tip-Using. Periods. Between. Each. Word. In. A. Sentence. For. Emphasis. Gets. Old. Very. Quickly.

I eagerly awaited Madelyn's next book in her bewitching series and I was very sorry. There was very little of the bewitching that took place in her other books. She spent most of the book building up the romance and forgot about mysteries and bewitching. It is like she can't decide which genre to write in and so is writing in several and doing poorly at it. Am not sure I will purchase any more in the series.

Got to say I had this mystery figured out pretty quick. But this series is more than the mystery. Like most cozies, it is the people and the relationships that keep me coming back for more. I love Maggie, her friends and crazy family. The developing romance is great too. But this series has something speciial. It has a continuing mystery of what is going on in town that has people acting strange and even deadly. I just know that Maggie and her developing "abilities" will be key to resolving that supernatural mystery.

I am so profoundly disappointed in this book. As I read it, I found myself thinking that it had to be a contract book. She had a deadline and a contract to fulfill and just cranked something out. It's the only reason I can think of that explains this decidedly lackluster effort.I have enjoyed each of the preceding books in this series. While she may do it more slowly than I would like, I give Alt full credit for having her main characters change and grow in their lives. After having Maggie vacillate between two very different men for a few installments, Alt has her main character choose one and then realistically addresses the consequences of that in a small town. She also takes one of the main supporting characters and in a completely unexpected twist, turns that person's entire life upside down. Surprises in cozies are rare and I was happy to find one here.However, neither of those things can save this book. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING happens for the first ninety pages of the book. That's a lot of dithering for any book but when those pages comprise one-third of the book, you know it's going to be a big issue. I'd like to say that the book got better as it went on, but it really didn't. Maggie spends most of her time inside her own head wrestling with what to do and somehow failing to put together the glaringly obvious clues. We do get some nice insights into her newly energized romance with Marcus but even that is not enough to stop this books from being boring. Alt neatly wraps up all the mysteries in a neat little package in the last 15 pages of the book, which is completely unfulfilling for the readers. As every writing instructor has ever said - show, don't tell.Alt has also decided to use a currently popular method of emphasizing what her character is saying by using a period after each word. Totally. Annoying. I am going to forget this book happened and wait for the next installment in the series with the hope that Alt gets back in her groove.

Maggie O’Neill is back in another good mystery. Right off the bat this book will be five butterflies. Maggie uncharacteristically, wanted to be done working at the store early that afternoon. She wanted to get her butt over to Marcus’s place so that they could watch movies and maybe do something more… That is until her mom called Liss who then called Marcus who told Maggie to get to the hospital asap. Maggie was pretty much busy with doing all the things her sister and mother wanted her to do at the hospital while waiting for her sister to give birth to her baby. Or in the case babies that no one knew about. Not even Felicity knew about the babies. The day after Mel gave birth to her twin girls Maggie was on her way out and going to her job when she broke her ankle. Maggie was thrown into a loop over the conversation she heard from the elevator and has been trying to figure out who the people were while trying to figure out who they were talking about. That right there has been the biggest mystery especially considering the weird way that Dr. Dan has been acting around Steff. Steff is Maggie’s best friend. Marcus has also been trying to get Maggie to stay put so that her ankle could heal which is turned out to be pretty hard. Since Maggie has too many things to worry about right now. Like helping her sister with the twin girls while her husband is missing, figuring out what happened to the teen that died, figuring with why Tony Nunizo was killed, and to heal her ankle. Madelyn Alt has woven a great mystery book as once again I didn’t guess who the killer was, once again. That has been becoming a trend for me as I haven’t figured out who killed the person that got killed in any of Madelyn Alt books. Anyways until next time enjoy this book review brought to you by Baroness' Book Trove. To read more book reviews like this one please go to my book review blog site @ baronessbooktrove.
